What is the Government Diversity & Inclusion Summit?

At its heart, diversity and inclusion is about warmly embracing difference and making the most out of it. Different skills, different experiences, different life stages, different knowledge, different ideals, different ways of life, different ways of seeing the world, different weaknesses, different strengths make up the sum of all of our variations as human beings and this variability can really offer great value to organisations. Accommodating difference with a spirit of inclusion really isn’t always a burden – introducing more diversity into your teams can help make them more resilient, functional and capable of problem solving and innovation. These are real and critically important strengths in an increasingly disrupted, rapidly changing world and work environment.

This year’s Government Diversity and Inclusion Summit program will explore how the public sector can better unlock the value in difference - using inclusion of diversity to positively transform the government workforce for both greater innovation and productivity and a more human workplace.
